Sony to Bring Move to PC with the Move Server Project
As you may know, Microsoft’s Kinect device has been getting all sorts of development on the PC, making some rather cool uses for the technology (although not officially supported). As for the Move, not so much. That is, until GDC (which takes place from February 28th – March 4th).
Sony’s John McCutchan, the Developer Support lead for SCEA, will be hosting a panel entitled “Update on PlayStation Move Development”. Here is the description of the event (from GDC’s website):
This talk will bring developers up to speed on developing for the PlayStation Move controller. We will cover developing for the new PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter accessory. We will discuss the new Move Server project that will make it possible for academics and hobbyists to develop software using the PlayStation Move controller on their own PCs.
No other word has been made regarding this, but it would be pretty cool to see some of the stuff hobbyists and other developers will use the Move system for. This is the first time I’ve heard of the Move Server project myself. GDC (Game Developers Conference) is the next big gaming event of the year.
